Chapter 30

David praiseth God for his deliverance. (A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.)

1)I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

2)O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

3)O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave; thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

4)Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

5)For his anger kindleth against the wicked; they repent, and in a moment it is turned away, and they are in his favor, and he giveth them life; therefore, weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

6)And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

7)Lord, by thy favor thou hast made my mountain to stand strong; thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

8)I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication.

9)When I go down to the pit, my blood shall return to the dust. I will praise thee; my soul shall declare thy truth; for what profit am I, if I do it not?

10)Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me; Lord, be thou my helper.

11)Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12)To the end that my soul may give glory to thy name, and sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
